The Sony/Canon LANC PixController is a complete electronic kit to construct a Wildlife Video Surveillance Camera System, or Remote Video Security System.

The Sony/Canon LANC PixController uses an integrated Passive Infrared (PIR) detector which detects body heat and motion to trigger any LANC compatible Video Camcorder. 

The Sony/Canon LANC PixController will send a command to the attached camcorder to power the camcorder on, record video for a user set amount of time, then power the camcorder off.

The advantage of this type of unit is that you simply connect your camcorder to the board with the the supplied LANC cable. No camcorder modifications are needed. Note: This will only work on Sony/Canon models with a LANC port.  See below "Does my camcorder LANC port"

The User Switch Settings let you adjust the delay between recording sessions, set the amount of recording time, and setup the Walk-Test PIR mode.

"Do I need a servo motor to control the Sony's NightShot switch?" No, try the Sony NightShot Halfway trick.

With a recommended 4 C Cell battery supply you will get approximately 6.5 months of continuous use.

Does my Camcorder have a LANC port?
If you have either a Sony or Canon camcorder it may have a LANC port.  The LANC port is normally marked with this symbol: , but older Sony models may be marked by a "REMOTE" in blue letters.  Some models are marked by "Control-L". 


What is a
LANC Port?        

LANC was developed by Sony, but Sony has licensed LANC to other manufactures of 8mm and Hi8 camcorders. LANC support is found on all Sony camcorders and most 8mm or Hi8 camcorders from other manufacturers. Sony also supports LANC on its 8mm, Hi8, DV and top of the line S-VHS VCRs.

LANC connectors are usually 1/8" mini plugs - about the size of a Walkman headphone. Some devices use a circular 5-pin DIN jack.

LANC sockets are normally labeled LANC, Control-L, Remote, or designated with a special LANC symbol that resembles an "L" inscribed in a circle. To determine whether or not your camcorder or VCR is LANC compatible, (check the list below), check the camcorder or VCRs users manual, ask your dealer, or contact the manufacturer directly.


Compatible Current Sony and Canon LANC devices
Note: This is not a complete list. Any Sony or Canon Camcorder with a LANC port will be compatible with this control board. Some of the camcorders on the list may not have a LANC port. Sony has made some models listed here with and without a LANC port. When making a purchase be sure to check for the LANC port. If you are looking to purchase a LANC compatible camcorder eBay is a good source. Do a search for "Sony" and "LANC" under the description.
